Prebooked visits

On our busier days, such as weekends, school holidays and bank holidays, pre-booking is essential to visit Basildon Park. Find more information and book your visit using the link below.

Parkland walks

There's four way marked routes in the parkland for adventurous walkers, with fantastic views of the mansion and parkland. There are also shorter walks available, with hard standing paths in the gardens. Take a photo of the map from Visitor Reception and get some fresh air outside, with some warming hot drinks afterwards available in the tea-room.

Illuminated woodland

We've put up thousands of fairy lights in the trees on the woodland walk, creating lovely photo opportunities. You'll find the lights on your journey from Visitor Reception.

Please note that we may have to turn off the lights off during wet weather.
